The Manchurian Candidate 1959 | Lovely wrap-around cover art by Bernard Krigstein
Poems (1890), Emily Dickinson. Cover of the first edition.
One of my favorites! "How to Cook a Wolf by MFK Fisher. Chatty, smart essays on eating elegantly and cheaply. Written in the 40s, with plenty of war-period advice on scrimping, this book also espouses slow food ideals far ahead of its time. Oh, and it's hilarious."
"Norman Mailer, Moonfire : The Epic Journey of Apollo 11"
